How does Travel Training Work?
After meeting with a trainer and setting an appointment with them, a travel trainer will meet with you at a specified location at the time of your appointment. This location could be your house or even at a specific stop or transfer station. Once there, the trainer will walk you through reading the route maps and times. Feel free to ask the trainer any questions you may have about riding the buses.You and the trainer will board the bus at the nearest bus stop and the trainer will explain how to use the transfer stations. After practicing boarding and departing the bus, the trainer will return to the office.
If you would like to set up an appointment to meet with a travel trainer, please contact our office during business hours. Happy riding!
